Compared to Altaz, Equatorial mounts moves with the diurnal motion of earth, meaning they have much smoother slewing across celestial coordinates. German Equatorial mounts are often preferred for high-end astrophotography and exposures, but must be aligned perfectly north to verify you'll get successfull tracking when conducting exceptionally long camera exposures.
